Hair Loss, Anemia, , Bleeding and Weight gain
I'm not so worried about the weight gain because I've been trying to gain weight for a while now and this definitely helped! As far as the Nexplanon it works great as a contraceptive, Obviously! I'm not pregnant right? I've had it for 8 months and the full 8 months Ive had non stop bleeding. Its not heavy or anything. But who wants to wear a pad or tampon every single day! Its the worst birth control ever! I had super thick long hair and It just started falling out one day! I thought it was because of stress but apparently not! My hair is so thin even my husband recognized it! I steadily chew on ice. This was never a habit or ever did I get the urge to chew on ice. My dr says its because im anemic, Didn't know why till I did research on the Contraceptive! Id rather go back to mirena!

Expired implanon bad side effects and no doctors will help
I had a similar experience. I kept calling different OBGYNs until I found one that would accept my insurance. Keep trying!

Diarrhea and implanon removal
Just had mine removed, how did this pan out in the end?
Sophie  |  June 26, 2014
The site is fine, no spotting or anything on the period side of things, still having tummy discomfort and diarrhea and it's getting worse :(
May 19, 2014
I just had mine taken out a day after you and I'm experiencing the same thing! Horrible stomach cramping and backaches, as well as night sweats. I finally gave in and took pain killers and ibuprofen. Im spotting and miserable but no fever. I would keep watching your temp and the incision site for since fever can indicate infection. ( keep in mind I am not a doctor) hope this helps!
